Jochen Hecht

Versatile player able to play center or wing, though most contenders would likely deploy him as a 3rd line LW or on their checking line. Very good PKer. Good along the boards. Rarely makes defensive zone errors. Can pitch in 25-40 pts (82-game pace) depending on the season. He's skated better this season than he has in awhile, IMO. Does the small things to make lines work--he was a key piece on our top line with Briere-Pominville in 2006-07, and was excellent with Connolly-Pominville in 2009-10.

Cap hit of $3.525 is a bit exorbitant, but not as much of a concern when 24 teams have over $5m in cap hit space as of right now for the deadline.

What would your team offer for Hecht? Sabres would prefer draft picks.

I'd hope the Hawks could work out a package for Roy and Hecht but for just Hecht alone, I'd give a 3rd round pick and a 5th.

Yeah, a 3rd is about what I expect as a return, though I could see a GM adding a little sweetener, as you did, understanding that Hecht's value goes far beyond anything a stat sheet will show you.

Sabres fan here.

Value of Hecht? About 0. Dude's a dead weight to any team he's on. Disagree with entire analysis.

Would be happy to trade him for a bag of pucks.
